Ashley

I was rescued from a mobile home park.  I was born under a trailer, and some nice ladies saw me and started feeding me and contacted the Fat Cat people.  I'm very sweet, and was quickly adopted, and lived a nice life. But then the woman who adopted me moved to a new apartment that didn't accept pets, and I had to go.  So I'm back on the market, as they say.

I'm very affectionate and like people.  I'm not shy, and I don't have any bad habits. All I want is another safe place to call home, and someone to love me.

Won't you take me home?

Beautiful

Beautiful

I was rescued from the shelter in Red Bluff, where I was surrendered by my owner.  I was pregnant and so the shelter put me in a foster home where I gave birth to my babies.  They were all adopted, but I was not, and I was scheduled to be put to sleep.  The Fat Cat people heard of my plight, and took me in. 

I'm as sweet as can be!  I'm not fond of other cats, and now that I'm in a foster home with other cats, I have a little place of my own away from the other cats, where I can eat in peace and get away from it all.  I'm very talkative, and mew and mew if I'm in need of a snack, or want to be kissed.  My foster mom thinks I'm very dear, and very special.

When I was at the shelter, my bio read:

Beautiful is aptly named for her honey colored coat and gorgeous eyes. Beautiful is approximately 1 year old and came into the shelter ready to give birth. She was taken to a foster home where she raised her kittens in peace and quiet. Her children have all found homes so now it is Beautiful's turn for happiness. This lovely girl adores people, is very vocal in her kennel in case you miss seeing her and happily rolls around and around when you pet her or scratch under her chin. She just wants someone to love and in turn love her. She is such a sweetheart who deserves a second chance for a good life.

Bruno

Bruno

I was abandoned, and the Fat Cat people picked me up and got me off the streets.  I'm so glad.  When they got me, I was real thin and hungry, and my coat was badly matted and I had leaves and twigs and stuff stuck to my coat.  They got me fixed, and fed me, and cleaned my coat, and I'm now a happy little boy.

My coat is unbelievably soft and fluffy and easy to maintain.  I love having my fur brushed and I don't mind having my nails trimmed.  My foster mom says I have the most gorgeous blue eyes.  I like being around people and don't mind hanging out with other cats so long as they are as gentle and mellow as I am.  My voice is very soft and I will let you know when I'm lonely or frightened.  Once I get to know you, I will come to you for some TLC and sit in your lap and purr as you pet me, especially on my fluffy cheeks and under my chin.  I promise that we will both enjoy it a whole lot!

Won't you take me home?

Cora

Cora

I was born in a parking garage at a retirement community in the foothills of Cupertino.  The Fat Cat people were helping a couple of retirees there, and heard about me and took me home; I was a just a few weeks old.

Since I was a beauty (after they cleaned me up!) I was quickly adopted by a young couple, who loved me and cared for me for almost 5 years.  During that time they had two children, so I learned all about little people.  But then they decided to return to Britain (where they are from), and they couldn't take me with them. So now I'm looking for another home to call my own. 

My family wrote this about me:

Cora is a beloved family pet. She is very vocal and loves to talk.  She is very sweet and good with kids, though she can be shy with new people. She loves to play and is affectionate, your very own hot water bottle as she loves cuddling up to you. A beautiful indoor cat with a glossy coat.

Pick me!

Maude

Maude

You might have noticed that I'm missing an eye.  That's a long story: I had a litter of kittens in a garden in Los Altos, and injured my eye in a juniper bush.  A real nice person started to feed me and noticed my situation and rescued me and got me the veterinary care I needed.  Everyone thought I was feral and so they kept me in a cage until my eye healed, but one day my foster mom came to feed me and I purred and rolled over for a belly scratch.  I guess those humans just couldn't understand. I'm a really sweet cat.

I'm a foodie. My foster mom thinks I probably need therapy because I love to eat and eat -- I think it goes back to when I was roaming the streets and always hungry.  Anyway, I'm really fat and need to lose weight, so I need a foster home where my foster mom or dad can give me some tough love so that I can lose weight.  Some of the other cats at my foster home pick on me because I'm fat and only have one eye, and when that happens I just head for the comfort food. 

Pick me!

Poppy

I've had it rough.  I was born outdoors near a recycling center.  An employee of a nearby business was trapping and fixing the cats in the area, and thought I was adorable, so he scooped me up and took me to his home -- I was a little kitten at the time.

I thought I was a member of his family and doing fine until he decided to move to Florida.  I guess he didn't plan to take me along, so when he moved he dumped me back outside at the business.  I was really scared, and was being beaten up by the other cats, who saw me as a newcomer and a threat.  I was too scared to get to the food bowl, and soon lost weight, and was starving.  The employees of the business contacted the Fat Cat people, who took me in and saved my life.

I'm now a sleek, beautiful little girl cat who needs a forever home.  Needless to say I'm scared of other cats, so I'd do best in a quiet home without other cats or dogs.  I love to be petted, and am very grateful for my new life.

Won't you pick me?

Sasha

Sasha

I'm a Siamese, and I'm special.  You must remember that. I'm a quiet, gentle, sweet little girl.  I like other cats, but I prefer to play quietly -- I'm not the rambunctious type!  I need my beauty sleep too, and like to cuddle up with my humans or another kitten.  I'm an independent little girl, but when I need some TLC I'll come up and lean against your arm, or play with something nearby, so you'll notice me!

I was rescued from a local shelter, where they had this to say about me:

Sasha here -- a true sweetheart.  I like to greet my family at the door and cuddling is how I say hello!  I'm not only a sweetie, but I like to play with any toy that comes my way.  Will you take me home?

Scott: Get your lap ready for me!

Scott

I've been in my foster home since I was a kitten. I was born in the bushes at the Sun Microsystems campus in Menlo Park, CA which is now home to Facebook. I love to curl up with my foster dad and exercise my purr-motor. I know it's hard to tell from my picture just how loving I am and I have a sneaking suspicion that those silly superstitions about black cats may have kept some people from wanting to know me better. Their loss, but your gain? As those Facebook folks say, won't you "Like" me?

Sebastian

Sebastian

I'm super sweet and affectionate, and purr all the time.  I'm a very happy little guy, and I love other cats. I'm the rambunctious, playful type, but I'll gladly stop playing for a snuggle.  In fact, I follow my foster mom around to make sure she hasn't forgotten about me!

I'm very high energy and very curious. I've developed a reputation as a result of this combination: I get into everything because I wanna know what's going on, and I want to be included.  I can't help myself.  If there's a paper bag on the counter, well, I gotta be in it.  I like to explore cupboards.  I like to play tag with any other cat.  I like to race around the house, hop on top of the fridge -- well you get the idea. Needless to say my foster mom is very happy when I'm tuckered out from all my playing, and I curl up next to her for a nap.

We were rescued from a local shelter, where they had this to say about me:

Hi! I'm Sebastian -- a funny, curious fellow.  I enjoy all the antics that kittens do in addition to wrestling with siblings.  I get my motor running and purr up a storm, and curl up on your lap for a nap after a hard day's play.  Am I the one for you?  Come visit!

Tippy Toes

Tippy Toes

I know, I know.  You wanna know about the toes.  Well, I was named Tippy Toes by an elderly couple who fed me and my brother Tartan in their yard in Los Altos Hills. We were rescued by the Fat Cat people when we were little. My toes are bright white, and contrast nicely with my distinguished black coat.  My brother Tartan and I are buddies.  I'm still a little shy, but come up and like to get pets, and particularly like it when you tell me how handsome I am.  I'd do best in a quiet home.

Turbo

Turbo

I was rescued from a yard in Los Altos Hills, along with Tippy Toes and Tartan.  I'm very petite and tiny for my age, and the Fat Cat people kept waiting and waiting for me to grow big, but I think I'm as big as I'm gonna be! Because I'm small, my foster mom has babied me, so I love to be held and petted and smooched.  I'd do best in a quiet home, without any big, noisy people.

Won't you take me home?

Vinnie

Vinnie

We were picked up when we were babies from an industrial area in Santa Clara.  Our mom had us in a well where there was lots of machinery.  Some workers heard our cries and picked us up and called the Fat Cat people.

Hi ya! Everyone tells me I am irresistibly cute. My foster mum finds me to be a cuddly teddy and loves to hug me whenever she wants. And, I let her do that everytime. After all, she feeds me! Oh, that brings me to my favourite topic -- food! I absolutely love food. Though I get enough kitten food I look at my foster parents when they are cooking or eating, in hopes that they will give me a morsel of food.  The next thing I love is playing with my toy mouse, and I can do that for hours with a continuous supply of food. I also love mock wrestling with my siblings. I am super energetic and very friendly. And of course, I love being cuddled. There are only four little things you need to do for me: 1. See that my food bowl is never empty. 2. Pet me every time I come to you. 3.  Cuddle me to sleep. 4. Protect me from loud noises and provide a safe place for me to hide until the danger is past.  I'm a lover, not a fighter!

Pick me!

Vivian: I'm alot bigger now!

Vivian

We were picked up when we were babies from an industrial area in Santa Clara.  Our mom had us in a well where there was lots of machinery.  Some workers heard our cries and picked us up and called the Fat Cat people.

I'm Vivian. I am, undoubtedly, the smartest of my siblings. Whether it is new tricks with the toys or climbing up the window sill, I do it first! I might appear a bit shy in the beginning but I get along with people very well. My energy will surprise you! My favourite past time is to look out of the door at the people passing by. And no matter where I am, I run down to greet my foster parents at the door when they come home, and follow them around until they pick me up and hold me. I like to play around with my toys sometimes independently and  sometimes with my siblings. But I also like to go purring to my parents for a pat or play.  If you turn me on my back in your arms and rub my forehead, there's not a sweeter and more innocent kitten you will find!


If I ever do get into mischief, you won't be able to be upset at me for very long because I'll turn my big eyes on you and start playing with your hair or fingers until you realize how sweet I am.  Trust me, the act is my copyright, and it works every time.

Pick me!

Willie

I've got a real sob story: I was adopted by a family and lived with them for 4 years.  Then they moved away, and dumped me outside at their apartment complex to fend for myself.  I wandered around the complex for the next couple years, and nice people fed me and sometimes let me sleep inside.  But I really didn't have a home of my own.  When the Fat Cat people met me, they thought I was real sweet, and took pity on me and took me in.  They cleaned me up and got me healthy -- I'd lost alot of my teeth from malnutrition.  So now I'm looking for place to call home. FOREVER.  They tell me I'm a dear boy and don't have any bad habits.

Won't you pick me?
